I can readily admit that I can be selfish at times. I think we all can have selfish tendencies. For me my selfishness came out when I weighed in this morning. "Only three lbs? Kinda makes me wonder why I gave up all that wonderful New Years food". Yes I did say this. I did also apologize to the medical assistant who patiently weighs and interviews me each week. In three weeks it is a total of 19 lbs. Not too shabby in the total amount sense. Sacrifice brings blessings. And as I sacrifice all the yummy food that I dream and drool over (today it is the bagels and pastries in the Bandon Coffee Cafe) I know I am coming closer to my goal and coming closer to learning restraint with food and myself.
